Welcome to our Easter edition of the Loddon Valley Link.

This April magazine is a collector’s edition, it won’t be delivered door-to-door. It’s available online or collection from:
Church End Telephone box
Sherfield Park Shop
Sherfield Park Community Association in the covered bin outside
Shop in Sherfield
Turgis Green Service Station
Stratfield Saye Telephone box
Wellington farm shop

Not surprisingly, this month’s edition has a different look and feel to it, the impact of the corona virus is being felt everywhere forcing the suspension or cancellation of nearly all of local upcoming events and introducing a major degree of uncertainty about what we all should be doing for the best. apr20 contents
Throughout the magazine you will find much current advice and carefully selected links to sources of information designed to help keep you up to date and to hopefully generally reduce levels of anxiety. You will find an interesting Mindfulness feature at P8 that you might like to investigate and a new colouring page P11 that will enable you to showcase some of your artistic skill along with the added interest of using the internet to 3-D animate your completed picture. You will also find a link to some more of the same if you get hooked.
This should stop you getting too bored while schools are closed and during a period of self-isolation - along with the usual puzzles to be found on P 40.
Also included are the regular parish council reports at P15 and P25 and Ranil has turned his attention this month to ‘Supporting Local Families’.
There is also a timely piece by Simon Boase, entitled a ‘Walk on the Wildside’, highlighting the growing menace of litter dumped in and around our beautiful countryside and neighbourhoods, P28, and what a couple of local heroes are doing to tackle the problem. Perhaps, as the article suggests, this type of clean-up operation is something with which we could all get involved you might feel inspired to get in touch via our email. It will also provide you with some welcome fresh air and much needed exercise by way of a more-purposeful walk.
You will also see on the preceding page the urgent call for volunteers who are needed to help deliver the magazine. This task is not too demanding and calls for an hour or so once a month, yet another good opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy a nice walk. While on the subject of volunteers, the Link is managed and produced by a small team of volunteers. It would be great to welcome new members to the team. If you are a would-be editor do get in touch. If required, full training will be given. This is a wonderful opportunity to get more involved with your community. So, do get in touch at: This email address is being protected from spambots.
